According to "Expert" on the Today Show, if we are Just "nice" to the BM, things will be fine!
I was watching the Today Show this morning and there was an "expert" on talking about how to deal with the BM of your stepchildren.
According to her, we just need to be "nice" to the BM and things will go smoothly. :O Yeah, right!
I tried that, and it didn't work. For example at my SS's high school graduation open house - despite the fact that the BM had sent us a "bill" for $1,000.00 for my DH's "share" of the party (which he was not consulted on anything), and that the BM had put a push-pin through the forehead of my DH in EVERY picture that my DH was in with his son, I still complimented her on it being a very nice open house, and congradulated her on her son's graduation, and told her that she must be proud of him. Later the BM felt it was appropriate to sing along with her bitter old divorced women friends on the Karaoke "I've Been Cheated, Been Mistreated....." at her own sons graduation party! :O
How do you deal with a psycho like that? Being "nice" doesn't work when they are crazy!
